Things My Feet Have Touched Today

The cold tile of my hotel bathroom.
The sidewalks of Pasadena.
The restroom of an El Taco Loco as the Uber driver had to make a pit stop.
The lush, green carpet of Janet's backyard,
the leaves from the avocado tree under my feet.
Venice Beach.

the long security line where I met Theo Vonn
(of Road Rules fame. "Is your name Theo?" I leaned over and asked.
He grinned, said yes.
After telling him I liked his podcast (the fan-girl line of the aughts?)
he asked where I was from. He was headed to New Orleans for his birthday.
So much we can learn about each other in just a few words.
He was lovely and sweet.
And made me feel simultaneously old and like a school girl.)

The security floor as I stood in my barefeet
and received a pat down that was the most action I've seen in days.

The bathroom tile at CVG
where I changed from flip-flops
to flats so as to guard my toes agains the cold.

Now, home. Where they belong.


  1. Oh, I love this idea for a slice! And so many things your feet have touched in such a short space of time! And your interaction with Theo Vonn is great. And safe home is always nice. Thanks for making me smile!

  2. First, I LOVE this idea too! You did add up the miles today. I'm intrigued now by where did you go after CVG? North, South? I'm a Cincinnatian, are you close?

  3. Another amazing blog post, Ang. I can sense all of it along with you! Loved having you here and showing you a "slice" of Venice. :)

    2. I live in Loveland and work at Miami U. Do you know Ashley England?

    3. So funny!!! She teaches in my building! Well.... across the street, but we're at the same school! hahaha

  5. This was great! Loved this quip, "a pat down that was the most action I've seen in days."
